re: Poker & LIve play $1-$2 Cash game Tourney??
Is that rake really that out of the ordinary? I don't know the average pot sizes, so doing the math isn't realistic, but in Vegas the standard rake is 10% up to $5 a hand, and here they are also essentially charging 10%.
Assuming you get 30 hands per hour, which I admit is probably on the high side, the average pot size would have to be $30 to "break even" compared to Vegas.
Edit: I see now it's a daily fee. While I do agree on the whole shortstacking issue and the problem that creates with profitability, the rake is clearly fair if you play a while. If you got 100 hands in, you would only be paying $1 a hand in rake which is far less than Vegas,
